for that. >> that's part of the reason we see such a jump for obama since the dnc because he has been winning the foreign policy debate. he has been winning on national security. lil' he's also winning on economics. >> that's what romney's biggest problem is. he's not winning on economy or national security. >> eliot: he should go on vacation. he would do better. every time he opens his mouth he goes down in the polls. ohio is the prime example. no republican can win without ohio. mitt romney down by 8 points. abby how is he going to come back? >> it is going to be very difficult. all i can say at this point he's not going to win on electability factor. he won't win on the relatability factor. >> eliot: likability, foreign policy economics. >> where he has some room to grow, i think is on substance. he needs to win the substance debate. that will be shown in upcoming debates. >> eliot: after watching for two years, he has to win the substance debate. he has how many days left? >> he's gotta provide more of a detailed, consistent plan that people can ingrate. >> he tried that with

presidential debate between the two contenders. both sides are working hard to shape expectations. beth myers sent out a memo that read in part . . . and obama campaign senior strategy david axelrod wrote, and i quote . . . for more on the expectations gain i'm joined by brent brent coburn. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> eliot: the expectation game, could we agree for the moment they are both really smart guys and we're hopefully going to have a good debate about substance. >> that's our hope. the debates a great opportunity for the american people tune in and the candidates tell their stories. that's what we plan to do. we hope the romney campaign comes prepared to do the same thing. beside his technical -- technical skills as a debater, we hope he finally comes to the table with some details. >> eliot: i think the american public and my perspective in all of this is no mystery, i share that there has been no specificity, the week there was supposed to be specificity it was swept away with the 47% comments. what would you ask him? >> how are you going to pay for these $5

senator rob portman. he is playing barack obama in these mock debates we have. i don't like him very much. he keeps beating me up and i keep shaking my head. obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claimed to think the same about romney. >> mitt romney is actually pretty good on his feet in debates. as these things go challengers normally win the first debate just by standing on the stage with the president, they could get a lift. >> eliot: romney has had plenty of practice standing on both sides of every issue. here is what he august. >> romney: the president has now raised taxes on the middle class. >> see there is one thing he has not done in the first four years that he said he is going to do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes. >> eliot: the committee offered support for todd akin who committed tuesday to staying in the race until the end? what seems to be an effort to look past akins comments, the commit released a statement that reed in part . . . just over a month ago, claire mccaskill lead akin by two points. and last week mccaskill was up by six. for more

the upcoming debates. g.m. is alive and obama that will work to the disadvantage of romney. he wants to talk about the economy, which i think is what he sees as the administration's weakenings. the more time he spends on foreign policy it takes him away from his core message. >> eliot: the issue of iran and the bomb that was in the news during the u.n. general assembly meeting, where are we on that. the president seems to be inching towards a demonstration towards a lack of patience, and the israeli view is that the time runs short. i mean, is this a matter of months where we need some resolution? >> well, i think there is some makings of a deal but it's going to take time, and to work on this. an example of where romney has rhetoric on iran, but when pressed what is his bottom line, it's similar if not identical president obama. >> eliot: p.j. crowley as always, thank you so much for your wisdom. >> my pleasure. >> eliot: tune in to current tv for our debate conscience where he'll be joined by cenk uygur governor grand home, john fugelsang and vice president al gore. join us h

he has to find a way to answer to that. i'm sure president obama will be bringing them up in the debates bringing up the issues and romney will have the chance to. the question is does he have something good and meaningful to say in response to them? >> eliot: the answer is no, he can't, he won't. game is over. reuters campaign finance reporter alina and mother jones staff reporter andy kroll thanks for coming on the program tonight. >> thank you. >> eliot: even members of the tea party are trying to get some distance from the tea party. that's ahead. by american express. welcome to the possibilities of membership. welcome in. american express. >> eliot: along with news that president obama is a net job creator, there are more jobs in the economy than when he took office, there is this interesting fact. he's presided over a turnaround in the creation of manufacturing jobs and that's our number of the day. more than 500,000 that's how many jobs we've added to the manufacturing sector since january of 2010. he all remember manufacturers the only ones who actually make stuff like ca

like you. >>now that's politically direct. >> eliot: it's so predictable as the presidential debates approach, a spokesperson starts down playing how his candidate will do, hoping that reports will be that barack obama or mitt romney did better than expected. it has nothing to do with who is really scoring more points and it doesn't fool anyone. we have all seen this kind of public relations stunt before no one is buying it. both candidates are smart and articulate, and skilled at this kind of debate, both campaigns and their candidates should be focusing on the serious questions that need to be answered. here are a few, for mitt romney governor you have attacked the individual mandate requirement in the president's health care plan, but approved it for massachusetts, and you, newt gingrich, and the heritage foundation argued it was the key to sound health care economics until barack obama adopted explain why the individual mandate is no longer essential to health care economics. second question, put aside the language about foreign policy and the rhetoric about not apologizing, name

that should be debated. >> i think you two have a problem with your president. president obama doesn't support what you want to have happened. >> eliot: you're right. >> he doesn't want to talk about it. >> absolutely. >> he doesn't want to talk about it because he doesn't want to get into that philosophical debate because unfortunately the debate is polarized. once you say common sense gun control. you hear from people who say you want to take away all of my guns. unfortunately, in the debate, even though policywise, there is a middle ground in the rhetorical debate, there hasn't been a middle ground. >> eliot: as with many issues, we move to the extremes where the possibility of forging a consensus in the middle is gone and the nra is taking an absolutist position on the second amendment and other people take absolutist positions on the other side. we won't thread that needle now. the president has not been leading on this issue. i've been critical of him on that as well as editorial boards saying we understand the politics of it. maybe now in the second term, he will have th

debate may be not so -- it may be like john mccain and barack obama four years ago. the first debate was the first letdown. a lot of wonkiness. they didn't go after each other very hard. they were a little bit nervous in feeling each other out. >> eliot: the notion they would enjoy it, i can tell you i've been through debates nothing on term with that, you don't enjoy it. there are butterflies in your stomach when you walk out there. you know the campaign potentially rests on every utterance you make. there is the his tansey -- hesitancy no matter how skilled you may be, there is a hesitancy and a fear. that's unavoidable. >> how do you deal with glenn beck who is a master of television regardless of what people may think about him. they're using a nice picture of you grimacing. glenn beck has the smile and you don't. >> eliot: i'm trying to scare him. getting prefight cut to look bloodied and beaten up even before we start. it will be fun. in a way this emotionally is similar to what people go through in a debate. you want to make your points. glenn beck and i disagree as fundamenta
